From its opening with the birth of the snowflake in the grey winter clouds above a mountain village;through all the viicissitudes of her career in the deep snows of winter,in the streans,the rivers and lakes,the peaceful countryside and the great cities through which she passes on her long journey to the sea; to the final moment when once again she is drawn up by the heat of the sun into the clouds from which she was born,the story is told with bewitching grace and sincerity.Behind the simplicity of this near fairytale lies a deep sense of the wonder and beauty of the cycle of creation and dissolution and recreation; a feeling expressed in the snowflake's own awe and wonder at the mystery of her being and at the wisdom and love of Him who made her.
